 About Wild accessiond
  Wild soybean(Glycine max (L.) Merr. subsp. soja (Sieb. & Zucc.) Ohashi) is a wild progenitor of the cultivated soybean (G.max subsp.max Ohashi). It distributes widely in East Asia, and grows in disturbed sites such as riverbanks, open places and peripheries of agricultural fields, while twinning tall herbs or prostrating. The wild soybean is rich in the genetic variability, and is useful as genetic resources for soybean breeding.

The wild soybean collection in Legume Base consists of samples collected by stuffs and students of Laboratory of Plant Genetics and Evolution, Hokkaido University, and their collaborators. It has been used for genetic and evolutionary studies of cultivated and wild soybeans.
